it long term. >> one other thing about the nra, wayne lapierre said in part, barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies want to bully you, strip you of your second amendment freedoms. i warned you that day is coming, now it's here. then a call for greater membership, which is exactly what's happening. nia malika, the battle is now joined, not a battle either side wanted to engage in during the presidential campaign. we just went through a two-year campaign, where except for one question in one debate, there was no talk about gun violence or any kind of legislation on guns. >> that's right. because for years we have seen republicans and democrats who were afraid of the nra. that changed on that awful day in sandy hook when 26 people were slaughtered, and so we'll have to see going forward if anything else changes in terms of legislation. >> thank you, both, nia malika henderson from "the washington post" and chuck that todd. joining me now, joe scarborough, host of msnbc's "morning joe." in looking what the president has done and the nra did to tee it up, where are the sides and
are on this right now. they're still feeling their way. >> if i -- if can i interpret joe biden correctly, and i've been listening to him for a long time, i think he's saying that the congress will not vote for a full ban on so-called assault weapons. that you go after the clips and talk about mental health care and -- chris: background checks? >> full background checks. the n.r.a. is going to be too smart by half here. they're going to totally oppose any kind of gun restrictions. and what they're going to end up with is the kind of background -- full background check scheme that the tea party types and the n.r.a. really don't like but what's really necessary. chris: let's talk about the n.r.a. this week they were very rejectionist and said get out of here and we're not doing anything. where are they going to end up? >> as howard was just saying on the background checks, one of the things that makes that particular issue different is that you have a lot of industry onboard. so people who sell guns, a company like wal-mart, they benefit if background checks are being applied to the loophole gun s
a lot. >> vice president joe biden set to give his policy recommendations as early as tuesday. joining me now is democratic congressman dave sicillini, thank you for being here with us. >> vice president joe biden, he'll be making his recommendations on tuesday. what do you expect to hear from him. >> well, i hope it will include some of the proposals that are already before the congress to fix the background check system and create a universal system so that every sale of a gun includes a background check to be sure that we close the broken system and ensure that information about the mental health conditions, particularly those adjudicated, are in the system to close the gun show loophole and close the fire sale when a licensed gun dealer has a license revoked. we really can fix the system and ensure that those are disqualified from possessing a firearm, criminals, those that are seriously mentally ill, don't have access to firearms, and i think his recommendations can fix that system. there's legislation already propose that had we've introduced in the last congress and in this cong
president joe biden is expected to present his plan to prevent more massacres on tuchlzesday. but i want to put up remarkable numbers them. nra contributed $20 million to federal campaigns last year. $20 million and gun control groups gave $4,000. and, 50% of the members of the new congress, more than half have an a-rating from the nra. given all of that, how do you and other groups that feel as you do, hope to take on the gun lobby in practical terms? how do you match their money and clout on capitol hill. >> look, the nra spent a lot of money on the elections last cycle and didn't have a lot to show for it, especially if you look at the senate and a lot of their candidates lost and, we're looking at return on investment, they had a very low return on investment. but, of course the nra is a very strong lobby and, i think the issue here is, who is going to represent the voices of the american people in this debate? we are talking about things that seem like common sense to the american people and they understand we need to protect people's rights to own a gun in their own home an protect
opinion here. you are going to see joe biden come out with his report on tuesday. i am sure the president will mention it in the inaugural address and really push it in the state of the union address. i still get the impression from talking to candidates head of the liberal think tank one of the groups involved. the president will rebegin up his campaign. i think you will see this on a lot of issues to get a lot of like minded people to raise money to put pressure on congressmen by public education camps saying voters i think they are going to go smaller rather than bigger. i think i will propose stop on weapons ban. they will get through a universal background check. 40 percent of all of the guns sold are not subject to any check. i think one of the arguments they will make is and you could argue it right or wrong. one of the arguments they will make if the problem isn't the weapon but the person holding the weapon why shouldn't there be any check when someone buys a gun they don't have mental health problems. >> i hear you have senator blumenthal also. you had a chance to talk to him. i
in los angeles. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. vice president joe biden is meeting with the house today getting ready to, to put together that list of recommendations to curb gun violence. there is one point where both sides agree, punishing people who lie on their background checks. until 2010, nearly 80,000 people were denied guns for lying or giving inaccurate information about their criminal history. but, only 44 of those people were actually charged with a crime. this is one of the issues joe biden's task force is looking at and we can last timing expect his plan to include a stronger focus on background checks. those recommendations to the president could come as early as tomorrow. the group is also looking at mental health treatment, violence in video games and movies and a potential ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazine clips. the nra is, of course showing strong obviouspposition to. this yesterday ocnn's face the nation, group president david keen said an assault weapons ban will not make its way through congress.
of the warren commission report on the death of jfk. >>> vice president joe biden is about to send his recommendations to president obama and proposals for new gun control legislation, but he used some interesting words to describe his progress saying he was "shooting for tuesday to hand it in." he went on to say "there is no silver bullet to stop the killing." >>> the white house is giving a detailed response to petitions for construction of a death star like in star wars. the tongue in cheek response entitled "this isn't the petition response you're looking for" says the administration does not support blowing up planets. also it costs too much money and could be described by one man in a spaceship. >>> and that is your morning dish of scrambled politics. now we'll look at the national weather with nbc meteorologist bill karins what is going on with the weather? >> fascinating. >> i was watching people playing basketball in short sleeves, tank tops. i'm not complaining. >> you don't own a ski resort. >> that's true. some people in new england are very much complaining. a lot of extre
come to the table and be part of a comprehensive package. i'm sure joe biden will accept them and joe manchin will accept them and conservatives will accept them to come to the table. i'm sure their membership wants them to do it, not the survivalists or gun manufacturers who have made millions of dollars off the death of 6 and 7 year-olds, the truth. it's not too late. if they keep their feet in cement, they're going to be run over, not by joe biden, but these polls show, by middle america, by gun owners, by people that want to protect their children when they're at school, they want to protect their children at shopping malls, want to protect their children when they're in church, protect their children at movie theaters. this is middle america coming after you, nra, not a politician. >> the president is at the forefront and we have to lot to go through. president obama is reviewing a list of gun control items from joe biden. background checks and limits on assault and ammunition. during the-yesterday, problem talks about it. >> those that apologize gun control or measures have a pr
close look at it as is joe biden who is expected to come out with some recommendations in the next 24 hours. >> reporter: over 30,000 gun deaths in the u.s. every year, the challenge, gun control. >> i lost my husband right before christmas. >> reporter: if anyone knows the pain of losing someone to gun violence, it is new york congresswoman carol mccarthy. her husband was dilled in a mass shooting on the long island railroad. after years of trying to pass gun laws on capitol hill--all the time it was difficult because there's so much anger, why are we allowing this to continue to happen. >> on day one of the new congress, mccarthy and other lawmakers introduced or reintroduced -- several senate bills are on the way but all are far from a gun deal. in his first term, president obama passed no laws permitting gun use. even before he's sworn in again, he's expected to review proposals from his new gun task force. >> this is a team that has a very specific task to pull together real reforms right now. >> the white house is focused on a white ranging plan involving more than just firearms
-o-t-w-i-r-e ♪ hotwire.com >> and tonight, according to reports, vice-president joe biden told a group of house democrats there are 19 executive orders that president obama could invoke when it comes to gun control. so while the white house prepares to abuse its executive powers there's growing evidence of dangerous impact of premature anti-gun measures because days after a local newspaper in york, the journal news released the names and addresses of gun owners one of the owners on the list has in fact been targeted. accord to go a report at least two burglars broke into a home in white plains, new york on saturday night and they tampered with the gun safe, but luckily the not able to get into it. now the white plains police commissioner says he cannot confirm that the attempted robbery had any connection to the map put out by the journal news, but the evidence sure points to that and police say they've not made an arrest. joining me with reaction to the putnam county executive, the one who refuse today release to the journal news, the addresses of residents, mary odell and bo dietl. bo, you're
to back off on it. whereas some of us thought frankly watching joe biden and talking to people around a this task force that he was not going to go there, when this gets reported to the president, very quickly, by the end of thissant more he is going to take some very big steps. it is a fight he wants to take on clearly. they may not get it. the politics aren't there yes. but he is going to at least engage congress on. >> i have a couple of minutes and a couple things want to get to quickly. first of all, four, mayor booker, taking on some of these big debates and might take them on in the senate. you filed your papers to run for the senate in new jersey to take on a senator lautenberg. is that what you intend to do? will you run? >> again, you have to file the papers even to do research on the issue, even to travel on the issue. so, we are complying with the law before we do any exploration of the senate run. we have got to file an account. that is my intention. it is over a year away. a lot is going to change between now and then. >> senator lautenberg called you self-absorbed and d
, but they kept their distance. senator joe biden was one of those. and i gather he was one of those. they are not naturally senate people. that does not mean that they do not have friends, but it also does not mean that they have a whole lot of warm ties. he grew to be one, but he was not initially. senator biden actually had hair. it was a long time ago. before he had hair. i would say that senator ha gel's personal ties are dated. he has been out for a while. terms of republican support, i would say it is very thin to nonexistent. we will have to see what happens. i do not think many people would be voting for him because of friendship. host: you can watch or listen on c-span radio. we are talking with steve clemons, and gary schmitt. our focus, the nomination of chuck hagel. next, a democrat joining us from tennessee. good morning. caller: the republicans are going against everything and everybody that he puts up there. hadfields to be in a war and get hurt. not until you walk in your shoes. it is time for them to wake up. host: he has sacrificed a great deal, but nevertheless, i
president joe biden and president obama's request, led a task force to address the broad, sensitive, and inflammatory issue of gun control. gun groups like the national rifle association, presented views to the biden task force which has addressed specific proposals. notably, reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 and close loopholes. require standardized universal criminal background checks and mental health background checks at gun shows and through private dealers. support for what the obama- biden team is doing at the federal level was echoed by governor cuomo in new york, on and for the state level. >> set an example for the rest of the nation. let them look at new york and say, this is what you can do! pass reasonable gun control in the state of new york! and i say to you, forget the extremists. it's simple. no one hunts with an assault rifle. no one needs 10 bullets to kill a deer! end the madness now! >> the point of governor cuomo's plan, single standards for background checks, notably to bar convicted felons. ban large capacity ammunition clips. ten rounds
the president and joe biden are giving crystal vases but with obama seated with harry reid and speaker boehner, i half expect a food taster present but joking aside, they will be collegial, that is expected. >> senator schumer joked he and his inaugural co-chairman will be sitting between be to keep it simple but he said for the sake of the nation he hopes the two parties find a way to develop a better recentship in the years ahead. >> that tunnel ordeal was a mess, i heard they did not even print purple tickets this time. >> they retired the purple ticket after what happened in 2009. >> battery fire on a japan airlines 787, two weeks ago was not caused by overcharging. the national transportation safety board said there could be problems with wiring. the f.a.a. in the united states and many other countries grounded the boeing 787 dreamliner until they get answers. the plane relies more or electrical system than older aircraft. still ahead, a look back at the president's first term with a look ahead toward what could come next. first we will try to put together what happened at the end of the
: that is true. when you think of joe biden, chuck hagel, barack obama, john kerry, you four guys that worked in that committee. i think they will find opportunities. they did work together. i remember david petraeus, when he was testifying about afghanistan, was asked by richard luger about strategy and where afghanistan fit inside the broader objectives. he said, that is not my job. my job is to achieve success and achieve our objective inside afghanistan. i cannot tell you what the trade-offs are. i respect very schmitt a great deal. we have a legitimate disagreement as far as the strategic objectives and costs the united states bore for that. when we invaded iraq, which i opposed, i thought was completely right to decimate al qaeda, i thought the rationale for dealing with iraq was different. i thought you moved saddam hussein, you basically create an incredible opportunity for iran to grow. that would require us to take a different -- it has always been about iran, but our decision to take up the chief storm and tap in the bottle was something that, where you get a real test of the quest
vice president joe biden has been busy meeting with a range of groups about gun control including the nra which released this statement after their meeting with biden. they said and i quote: we were disappointed with how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe how much it who h. to do within amendment to attack the second amendment. the task force spent most of its time on proposed restrictions on lawful firearm owners. honest tax paying hard working americans. it's unfortunate that this administration continues to insist pushing failed solutions to our nation's most pressing problems end of quote. the gun debate has gotten ooff track. when it talks about you don't need 10 bullets to kill a deer, that's not the point. folks, it's about protecting yourselves and your families. the second amendment is not to protect your hunting rights. it's to protect you when maybe the police are 30 minutes away. i understand wanting to stop violence. more guns in america past 20 years overall the murder and violence rate is down by half. i think when we talk about maybe we n
and was in the meeting with joe biden. and scientist after scientist has showed there is no correlation in the video games. and i just think pointing in that direction is taking us away from the real problem which is guns. it's not an either/or, but i'd like to start up here. >> first of all, who were the scientists? are they scientists that the video game industry paid for? because i'll tell you what, i conducted my own scientific survey with two teenage boys watching them and watching all of their friends grow up. of course, it wasn't a scientific study. i saw it with my own eyes, and i'm telling you, kids from the age these days of 8, 9, 10 to the time they're 20, 21, 22 simulate the murder of thousands and thousands of human beings on these video games. donny, just -- and i had this conversation with mike barnicle before on the air, i believe -- just as pornography desensitizes young males to sexuality, these video games desensitize young males. and movies by people like quentin tarantino that make chopped up, shot-up cadavers a punch line where the audience actually laughs, those work together
ban. he said a task force led by vice president joe biden had presented him with a list of " common sense" steps to prevent shootings like the one at sandy hook and elementary school. obama also alluded to potential resistance from opponents of gun control. >> part of the challenge we confront is even the sight -- slightest hint of some sensible responsible legislation in this area. it fans this notion that somehow, here it comes, and that everybody's guns are going to be taken away. it is unfortunate, but that is the case. if you look over the first four years of my administration, we tried to tighten up and for some of the laws already on the books, but it would be pretty hard to argue that somehow than owners have had their rights and fringe. >> the new poll shows support for gun control measures is on the rise. and abc news/washington post survey found 54% of americans are in favor of stricter gun control laws in general, the highest in five years. nearly 60% support it and on high-capacity ammunition clips. and it's the push for greater gun control, many across the country are
. >>> there he is joe biden taking the oath of office this morning and not far from here in fact over at the naval observatory, and a twist of historic irony perhaps the country's first black president's public swearing is going to happen on the same day that we honor one of america's great civil rights activists, martin luther king jr. we will pause to remember dr. king's birthday and i'd like to bring in andrew young the third, former civil rights leader and ambassador andrew young. good to see you, sir. >> hey, craig, how are you doing? >> great. your father is a long time friend and confidant of reverend king. what have you learned from your father, and also, his generation as well? >> you know, i think that it is very important that we as americans today give each other a faith-saving way out, and that is one thing that my father was adamant about throughout his life is that when you have an opponent and have indifferences about a subject, that you give your opponent a way out. to keep his dignity and that is how you create change, and that is what dr. king and my father and dr.

that are hard because they're the right things to do. >> the president will be joined by vice president joe biden who presented his task force recommendations monday. also joining the president tomorrow will be children who wrote letters to the white house after the deadly shooting at sandy hook elementary school just over a month ago. and this pivotal moment comes as more americans are calling for stricter gun laws. a new "washington post" post shows 52% of people believe the shooting at sandy hook has made them more supportive of gun control. the latest pew survey shows big support for universal background checks and preventing gun sales to the mentally ill. broad backing for a federal gun database and the banning of semiautomatic weapons. so why is it that even the suggestion of such measures is provoking such fear and trembling from conservative quarters? possible executive action such as limiting gun imports, sharing mental health records, and, heaven forbid, researching the public health impact of guns have led this congressman, steve stockman, of texas to threat be impeachment if the
if we had these kinds of things in place. >> chris: joe biden indicated in addition to the legislative action he will suggest to the president that the president can also take executive action but not on the big things like banning guns or universal background checks. what kinds of things do you believe the president can do on an executive action basis, unilateral basis that can make a difference? >> start by ensuring that the federal government, people within the federal government turn over their records also to the background check system. so the defense department needs to do that. >> chris: so more information sharing? >> more information sharing within the government. >> chris: do you have a problem with that kind of executive action? >> i think we are just avoiding the reality we have been moving in the direction that somehow self-defense is not valid and that we can somehow protect ourselves by this background check idea he and in fact background checks wouldn't have stopped most of the last of these ms. murders that have occurred. the gun gets stolen or the person has no backg
are angry, there you go. and in the meantime, vice-president joe biden has been busy meeting with a range of groups about gun control, including the n.r.a., which released this statement after their meeting with biden. they said, and i quote. we were disappointed how little this meeting had to do with keeping our children safe. and how much it had to do with an agenda to attack the second amendment, while claiming that no policy proposals would be pre-judged, this task force spent most the time on proposed restrictions, on lawful firearms owners honest, taxpayering hard working americans, it's unfortunate that this administration continues to insist on pushing failed solutions to our nation's most pressing problems, end of quote. and the gun debate has unfortunately gotten off the track. when the governor of new york talks about you don't need ten bullets to kill a deer, that's not the point. folks, it's about protecting yourselves and your families. and the second amendment is not to protect your hunting rights, it's to protect you when maybe the police are 30 minutes away. i understand
of counterterrorism action, all of those things joe biden talked about a long time ago. i think that's all we'll have there in the future. >> senator corker, are you comfortable with that? >> well, i think the decision about the number of troops we have on the ground after 2014 is something that ought to be weighed as we move along. i realize we're going to be moving down to about 30,000 troops. i'm relatively comfortable with that, but i think as far as what we -- the contingent we have after 2014, i would wait and i don't know of any reason why we would make that decision today. it seems that we'd want to see what the state of afghanistan is. we'd want to see what's happening in the electoral process. all of those things are obviously big factors. my sense is there's no reason to decide whether 6,000, 9,000, 15,000 troops until we get to that point. >> but, senator reed, how about by the spring. to simply training and support by the spring? last month's pentagon report said 1 of 23 afghan battalions is capable of operating on its own. >> i was down in the patyka province, and essentially 87% of the
